    Car Delivery Tickets

    Now this is where it gets weird i dont know how but I have all of the pre order cars Stealths and Chrome Lines, Edge Special, Gamestop Camry, FT 86 II and Kart 125SPL why and how this happened I honestly do not know, I have never partaken in any glitches, atleast not deliberately, only thing i can think is it has happened when I have been transferring my save between accounts from my old consoles best guess, i opened the 787B one 'coz A) Its My fave car and B) i wanted to test if it would crash my game as i have never seen or even knew tickets existed for them, i only use the one I opened however I have not touched my Pre Order one.

    Anyway other notable tickets are the expensive Alfa Romeo race car, the Ford GT Race Car '69 the Jaguar XJ13 Race Car '66 I have 144 cars in the delivery but they are my either most notable or most rexent won.

    I will be attempting next the A-Spec Laguna 200 and I am grinding to B-Spec level 30.

    I would love to get other peoples progress and cars and whatnot and see if we cant make something of a small community cant active GT5 players just playing through sharing updates. For the Laguna 200 I will be using my Edge Special Camaro that i have put some nice body modifications on it. The Reason I am currently hammering B-Spec is because i bought a cheap chinese controller it looks great but it cant accelerate or brake anything like smooth or turn smooth, traction control and ABS have took the edge off but its still always either spinning the wheels up and spinning me out or locking the wheels up and just sending me straight so I am going to try and find another DS3 they seem to be quite rare now however, i need one as I love playing without TCS, SRF or ABS.

    Hope to hear back from people soon oh and to prove my pre order and promo content is genuine Ill attach some pics.

    so yeah, running the Suzuka 1000km in A-Spec now and it has full bore rained from lap one am currently pitted in on lap 80 am pitting every 20 laps still, the rain tyres i think could maybe go another 5-10 laps but i am filling up 60-ish litres of fuel per 20 as well, if it was a full dry track i wouldve filled up 70-75 litres but the constant low revs and short shifting is using far less fuel, am currently 3+hrs in and not even halfway, also completed last night the A-Spec Tsukuba 4 hour that was actually an epic race I was in a way under powered premium Eunos Roadster with sports mediums on and it was a straight up war for the first two hours against a far superior MX-5 then the last half hour was tense i went onto sports softs and they were shot in the last 30 and the MX-5 Was gaining fast on frwsh rubber himself. But a got there in the end.

    Now got the last of the Suzuka 1000 done and have done the nurb 4 hours i used the silvia RM its a fantastic car handles so nicely not the most powerful but its a well balanced machine.

    Recently did the Historic Racing Car cup with the Chaparral 2J at Deep Forest. The race got off to a great start as the Mark IV and P4 didn't stand a chance through the first turn. After I blew past them and a gulf GT40 shortly after, I spent the rest of the lap chasing down another 2J and a Toyota '70. I overtook both of them on the back straight and took the lead. Coming down the main straight my 2J went over a crest and the car became airborne. After coming back down I nearly lost control but, I managed to keep the car on the track. The next 4 laps were smooth sailing. After the race, I decided to take a photo of the 2J while airborne and liked it so much I made it my profile picture! An easy win and a few credits, but the photo was the real highlight.

    My current save isn't legit as most of my cars have been added with the GT5 Garage editor. My old save from 2010 somehow got deleted. My garage has about 400 cars plus DLC's. I spend most of my time on GT5 playing online with the LAN mod over XLink Kai. Yesterday I joined a lobby with some other players from a GT LAN discord server. 6 guys joined and we did a rally race at Chamonix Main. It was a blast, and I happened to take the win also!

    Hey Goongumps good to see you im ILOVEFOOTBALL95 from Discord server, i was the same roundabout last year i was using GE to get the stealths and chromelines then typically i found my old save and accou t with it all on lol right after all the breakthroughs over at Discord i have done this save legit however, i have recently got all RM cars, i used the Silvia RM for the Nurb 4 hour in a-spec and it was fantastic i put a quick tune together and i by luck struck gold, i did a bit with NSX RM and the ISF RM is my other go to atm, i love my Stealth 787B but am not using it so much atm, i am really trying to luck hard for the FGT then i can grt the extreme events done im realising however Im going to need the LVL 24 ticket so am just going to plug away with B-Spec also gives me a chance to see how tyres and fuel perform in races so i can ha e a rough idea for when i do mine, i am going to run one more INDY 500 to reach level 32 as i only have 4 more enduro b spec races left and hopefully get the FGT a really dont want to do the back up trick... also that pic was amazing love the way you captured it, mine never seem as good thats why i dont take many pics im gonna post back once i see how the NURB 4 hour has gone ill post back with car/tyres used and progress.

    Thank you very much for replying btw will hopefully be great to share progress and stats, tips and tricks also i can upload my save as i do back ups I was also thinking of uploading on discord as a resource GT5 saves where the game is started with all licenses gold and special events gold all done legit with DS3, it maybe nice for people that want to play but cant quite manage the licenses and SE's.

    Thank you again Goongumps and good to see you

    So got the Nurb 4 hour won, got a Lexus IS F Racing Concept nice car, shame i already have one next step is to spam the Nurb 4 hour for exp so I can take on the Tsukuba 9 hour, then ut shall be my turn to do the 4 hour nurb... car I used was the Lexus ISF RM and it turned out to be slightly OP won by a minute + was tight for the first few laps tho but i think i had the better pit strategy too, i was on the same tyres as the AI too i had less top ens than the Nismo fairlady 350z... am still waiting in the meantime for an F1 car to show up if i get a second hand one im gonna use a car restoration ticket on it as im not doing all this for a used car lol.

    So, onto hour 16 a few mins into it, which i make 8:00 in the morning the rain subsided aat about 3 or 4 oclock in the morning and its shaping up to be a lovely sunny day, cars been pounding round nicely like its on rails, drivers are getting a fresh bill of health every 2 stints (20 Laps). Since the Pescerolo hybride is pitting every lap Wagner has fell down to 9th and hays driving the good ole Bentley has been running comfy in second with the toyota gt one running on the same lap but both they toyota and bentleys drivers are wearing out slightly now we are running 5 laps clear out front.
